Where will the facility go?

We are in the process of siting the MMF, which will be centrally located in the County. In March 2015, County Council approved the siting process and evaluation criteria. More than 80 potential sites were evaluated, resulting in a short list of five sites.  

The five short-listed sites for the MMF are also under consideration for the Organics Processing Facility (OPF).  On August 25, 2015, County Council approved a recommendation to move forward with the siting process and to include consideration to co-locate both facilities on one site.  The short list of sites will now undergo further evaluation and a period of public and stakeholder consultation.

The preferred site will be presented to County Council in early 2016.
